2006 Deer Hunting Photo Contest

218 posts in this topic

Thought I might start things off...this was my first archery deer ever, and first deer period! I shot her opening morning at 17 yards, just a nice-sized doe.

Here's a little guy I removed from the city of Duluth. Just doing my part to help with the crowd control. wink.gif

A great memory from this hunt is that this little guy was the first deer taken with my new bowtech. While practicing the day before opener my old bow blew up so I raced out and bought a new one. I became confident shooting with it that same day and after the season started I made a perfect shot on a tasty deer.

Hunter's 2nd deer with me, but the first one he got to see the whole thing. I don't know who was more excited, him or me!

I watched this deer for 3 weeks prior to Michigan's Archery Season. Opening morning he came in at 6:50AM but didn't give me a shot. Opening night he came through at 6:10PM gave me a quartering away shot at 15 yds, I stuck him good and watched him go down about 40 yds later. I dont know how to score a buck and I dont think it scores that much but it would be interesting to find out some day. It has a 16.75 inside spread and it's longest G2 is 9".

It was a 9 pointer and dressed out at 202 lbs.

Here's a picture of a doe I harvested tonight! Beautiful shot placed right into her boiler room. She bled out and found her about 60 yards from where the arrow passed through. I love Montec G5 broadheads! grin.gif

Let me guess...Browning White Gold Medallion.... .270...

If not it looks like one...I used to have the 7MM and I couldn't bring myself to drag it through the woods/field any longer traded it in and got the Stainless Stalker which I don't worry about getting banged around.

Nice animal!

Can only one pic per person be submitted or is there no limit? I posted one earlier to add to the thread but plan on taking a huge buck and another doe and am wondering if that would be alright to submit them as well. I'll still post the pics just wondering for the contest part. Good luck to everyone! Keep it going!

Yes it is a .270 White Gold Mediallion. I bought it knowing how I was going to use it. I don't like banging it around but I expected it too. I have had it about 5 years and it has done really well for me.

Yes he is going on the wall. The really cool thing about him is that he has a double set of horns. He has some about 1" tall horns behind his main set. Pretty neat the guy whos land we were on said he had never seen that before. You can see the pictures of the double horns in the North Dakota forum.

      probably eagles if fishing. I think the fultures like highways. :):)

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400.
